Was gonna be a steam beer, that will more likely be a lager at the temperature I'm seeing.

The only one I ever broke was on it's side on a shelf and rolled into another one.  I was kinda afraid to use the survivor the first time after that. :(

Looks like I have 17 batches in the log book.  That wouldn't include the "no pants" batches.  To count those I'd have to be sober.

I'm not sure when the website split into three new sites but has a calendar that may have what you're looking for.

Exactly what I was looking for.  Now if we can just get it populated. ;)

I'd keg it.  Then if it ends up over carbonated, I could release the excess pressure & still enjoy. 

Saturday is the "feast of Stephen" so I'll be brewing a "Wenceslaus lager".  Pilsner malt, saaz hops & WLP802 Czech Budejovice.

For me it was the other way around.  It was  when I tasted one that I just threw together and said "YUK, I should never do that again!" and didn't realize what "that" was.

Mark your calendar.  Order your hop rhizomes in March.  I got enough Cascade for four batches last year (the other varieties were not as good though). :)

  ...This will not be on a stir plate, so I will just have to shake intermittently.

Why not?  Can't you put the stirbar into the gallon jug?  If you start the stirplate slowly, even if the bottom isn't flat, I would think you could get it stirring.

Hey Dean,

I think the scope of a board for Efficiency would be limited.  We've been trying to cut back a bit on the number of separate areas in order to make the forum easier to navigate.  Doesn't it seem like that would fit into either General or All Grain?  It could even be made a sticky so it would stay at the top of the list.  Anybody else wanna chime in?

All Grain gets my vote,

Mine was there when I got home from work last night.  Looks like time to move from 5 to 10 gallon batches :D
